The World-Ending Fire: The Essential Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry

Life-changing writings by the visionary farmer, essayist and poet Wendell Berry ‘He is unlike anybody else writing today … After Donald Trump’s election, we urgently need to rediscover the best of radical America. An essential part of that story is Wendell Berry. Few of us can live, or even aspire to, his kind of life. But nobody can risk ignoring him’ Andrew Marr ‘Wendell Berry is the most important writer and thinker that you have (probably) never heard of. He is an American sage’ James Rebanks Wendell Berry is ‘something of an anachronism’. He began his life as the old times and the last of the old-time people were dying out, and continues to this day in the old ways- a team of work horses and a pencil are his preferred working tools. The writings gathered in The World-Ending Fire are the unique product of a life spent farming the fields of rural Kentucky with mules and horses, and of the rich, intimate knowledge of the land cultivated by this work. These are essays written in defiance of the false call to progress, and in defence of the local landscapes that provide our cultural heritage, our history, our home.
